Skip to comments.Meet Mitt Romney’s cousin (Uh-oh!)
Posted on 02/03/2012 6:05:16 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
Park Romney says some pretty wild things.
Mormonism, he writes on the Web site parkromney.com, is an insidious contemporary fraud.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is an American cult, he professes.
Mitt Romney, he claims, would be conflicted in office because obedience to the leadership of the Mormon Church is part of the covenant of the temple ordinances to which Mitt Romney is absolutely a party.
Were you to come across a man articulating such views on a street corner, you probably would give him a wide berth and look over your shoulder to make sure he wasnt following you.
But Park Romney, apostate Mormon, is no street-corner eccentric. He is Mitt Romneys second cousin. Church documents and archival research done by The Posts Lucy Shackelford trace Parks lineage to Miles Park Romney, who is also Mitts great-grandfather.
The two men have never met. (Miles Park Romney had 30 children, which means Mitt Romney has scores of cousins.) And, based on what Park has been writing, hes not likely to get a dinner invitation from Mitt anytime soon. Gov. Romney has never heard of this person, and he doesnt know him, campaign spokeswoman Andrea Saul said....

Ahhhhhh polygamy! Family everywhere! LOL
For anyone who might think Mitt is a MINO, he isn't, he's deeply committed to Mormonism.
First he gets Donald Chumps endorsement, then his cousin runs amok. Gotta watch thos apostate mormons. God only knows what havoc these people would cause from the WH.
Article by Dana Milbank in the Washington Post, you know this is just an early salvo from the tons of opposition research don by Obama’s minions in the press.
Milt will never be the President. If the establishment pubbies elect the two-faced abortionist, the media will make the LDS porpaganda ads (’And I’m A Mormon’) trying to make MormonISM attractive look like the greatest campaign of evil ever devised. And all the media whoredom need do is keep hammering on the actual things taught in that faux-christianity religion. ... Which is of course yet another very sound reason to vote for Newt Gingrich, warts and all, rather than destroy the comity of this nation over a MormonISM tantrum to get elected president.
Second cousin? Really? How about Obama's Uncle Omar and Auntie Zeituni? They shouldn't even be in the country... much less on the dole.
PING A ROO
The Bishop is anything but an apostate, he is among the most devoted and special of all the Mormons. The Prophet himself gave his personal blessing to Bishop Romney to run, when they had their private meeting.
By apostate, did you mean the cousin? Sorry I misread your post.
Embarrassing family members: just another box to check on the way to public office.
This may get some notice, but it looks like they are painting Park as the crazy cousin.
This isn’t embarrassing. The man is saying that Romney will govern according to Mormonism. We are NOT a theocracy.
OOh Boy.....The conversation has begun. Wonder who in the MSM will see this...(Get your lists out)
If we don’t have a discussion about relligion in the primary it opens it up for later. As Sarah says NOW is the time to Vet the candidates.
Probably an example of why Sarah wants the campaigning to continue for a long, LONG time.
Get the dirty laundry out.
Gives new meaning to “the Family of God”
Remember Jon Huntsman is a cousin too.
Obama’s going to be pissed. It’s about 6 months too early for this kind of story. What was Milbank thinking?
